2.5 pounds ground beef
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons diced Campbell Gardnes candied jalapeños
1 cup of cooked, chopped bacon
Blackberry Chipotle Sauce Ingredients:
2 tablespoons of oil
1 tablespoons of minced garlic
2 tablespoons of minced, Campbell Gardens candied jalapeños
3 cups fresh blackberries, rinsed
1/2 cup bourbon
1/2 cup candied jalapeño liquid from jar
1 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons chipotle seasoning
Burgers: Mix cream cheese, candied jalapeños and bacon together in a small bowl. Separate the ground beef into 6 sections. Divide each section in half and flatten. Add one-sixth of the cream cheese mixture to the center of one of the halves, then place the other half over the cheese mixture and seal the sides. Do this for each patty and grill until done.
Blackberry Chipotle Sauce: Heat oil in a saucepan. Add garlic, candied jalapeños and saute for 1 minute. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes. If you’d like the sauce thicker add cornstarch and cold water. Taste as you go and add more sugar if needed. Once thickened remove from heat. If you don’t care for the blackberry seeds then run through a fine strainer.
Top burger with Pepper Jack cheese or Brie and blackberry chipotle sauce. This recipe will make 6 burgers.
